Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) took full practice reps all week. Olsen didn’t play in either meeting against the Saints this year, but was targeted seven times in both games against New Orleans in 2016. His injured foot may be an issue on the turf in the Superdome.

Scouting Report

Wild Card Round at New Orleans Saints

Greg Olsen was hurt for most of the season, and he struggled his final two games. However, he did have a great game against the Packers in Week 15, and he was targeted a total of 27 times over the past three weeks.

Olsen doesn’t have a great matchup this week against a Saints defense that allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to the tight end position this year. However, with only two other top-level tight ends available, Olsen should be considered a nice option for fantasy owners unable to secure Delanie Walker or Travis Kelce. There’s a big drop from Olsen to the next group.
